Gosau Things to Do

    Dachstein is the second most tallest mountain in the Northern Alps, with a dozen peaks over 2500 meters. It stretches over three regions of Austria (Upper Austria, Styria and Salzburg).

    Glaciers in the Northern Alps are uncommon, but the three glaciers on Dachstein are the biggest. There is the Hallstatt Glacier, the Schladming Glacier and the Gossau Glacier - that is seen here from the Gosau lake.

    Though the glaciers have been for million of years, they are regressing now with more than 20 meters per year and might as well disappear in a few hundred years.

    It should not take more than an hour, the view of the Dachstein Glacier mirrored in the lake is gorgeous, the water green and you have along the path some points showing what men did with water over time to benefit from its energy.

    Another great and relative easy walk is to go around the entire Vordere Gosausee. Great views around you as well as reflecting in the lake!
